This Library Bar In Cincinnati Is Every Book Nerd’s Paradise

It can be heartbreaking to watch a beloved, historic building to fall vacant and into disrepair. Unfortunately, this happens from time to time, so it’s always wonderful news when someone plans to come in, preserve the building, and give it a new life – all while maintaining its original character. This is exactly what happened when the Clifton Public Library moved to a new location. Its former spot on Ludlow Avenue is now a wonderful restaurant named Gaslight Bar & Grill, and this library bar in Cincinnati is every book nerd’s paradise.
